Special issue content: Electrification

The world’s decarbonisation efforts require significant levels of electrification. The use of electricity from zero-carbon sources within buildings, industry and transport
will prove pivotal in reaching the zero-carbon future.

How can the world operate without burning fossil fuels?

It will need a much more resilient grid system, a rethink of domestic heating and new ways to power our cars and public transport.

FORESIGHT Climate & Energy delves into what electrification means for homes, factories, mobility and the economy; and looks at where electrification is already
helping bring down emissions

The four big steps

We investigate specific activities that show how to go about green electrification in four main steps. Our stories will look at the working examples from around the world that illustrate how to electrify energy use and the cost of doing so.

Step one:
Hugely ramp up the provision of renewable energy and rapidly build-out a fit-for-purpose electricity grid that can enable the development of ever-more flexible power systems.

Step two:
Electrify space heating in buildings (public, business and private), partly by making cooling of buildings far more energy efficient, freeing up electricity for heating and other purposes.

Step three:
Speed up the electrification of transport, including regulating a market for hydrogen fuel cells, with the hydrogen separated from water using electrolysis powered by renewables generation dedicated for that purpose.

Step four:
Electrify industrial processes reliant on combustion of fossil fuel today, the hardest nut of all to crack.
